Meet the Expert: Tasting and Book Signing with Joe Campanale

September 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Meet the Expert: Tasting and Book Signing with Joe Campanale

An exclusive tasting and talk with the Italian wine expert who Danny Meyer says gives us the gift of learning about the ever-evolving landscape of the world’s most soulful (and might I say favorite?) wine region.”

It’s time to re-open the Tasting Bar at Horseneck and we couldn’t think of a better way to do so than to have our friend Joe Campanale take us through the best that Italy has to offer.  Joe would know since he literally wrote the book on Italian wine: Vino: The Essential Guide to Real Italian WineJoe has spent his career running some of the greatest wine-centric restaurants in the city, including dell’Anima and L’Artusi, and has traveled extensively throughout Italy’s wine regions.  You don’t have to take my word for it – Food & Wine Magazine named him Sommelier of the Year. His book Vino is just about the most perfect cheat sheet for Italian wine and has been coined “the Italian wine bible for a new generation”.

On Thursday Sept 22nd at 6pm Joe will be here to lead a tasting of his favorite producers featured in his book. He will also be signing copies of Vino for everyone.  Joe is not on a book tour – this is a bespoke event just for Horseneck customers and will certainly sell out, so I urge you to grab your ticket as soon as you can.  Each ticket includes a hardcover copy of Vino: The Essential Guide to Real Italian Wine and Italian antipasti will be provided.

Purchase Your Ticket – $65

Joe is a Queens-raised sommelier, restaurant operator, wine expert and author.

Fausto’s wine program was named “one of the country’s most exciting” and the restaurant has received accolades from Eater, New York Magazine, The Infatuation, Time Out New York and Travel + Leisure, among others. Following Fausto’s success, Campanale opened LaLou, a neighborhood restaurant and wine bar in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn with a focus on natural wines from France, Eastern Europe, Spain and Austria. Joe was included in Eater’s New Guard, “the chefs and restaurateurs defining the next generation of dining” and later released his book Vino: The Essential Guide to Real Italian Wine, published by Clarkson Potter. He has been named a Food & Wine Magazine “Sommelier of the Year” and has been featured on numerous “30 Under 30” lists, including Forbes and Zagat and was later listed as one of Wine Enthusiast’s “40 Under 40.” He has hosted more than 200 episodes of his wine-focused podcast “In the Drink.”
